The owners have taken every measure to make the hut and grounds as 'green' as possible. From using low energy light bulbs to collecting rainwater for the garden and providing boxes and habitats to encourage native wildlife. The hut is run off renewable energy via solar panels. They really have gone the extra mile.
Promising scenes out of a fairytale, this gorgeously unspoilt area boasts winding country lanes, ancient farmsteads and pretty villages.
